Package: xmonad
Version: 0.9.2-2+b1
Severity: normal

I can't recompile my xmonad settings because libghc-xmonad-dev is
incompatible with ghc-7.0.4.

xmonad --recompile gives this:

    	    Bad interface file: /usr/lib/haskell-packages/ghc/lib/xmonad-0.9.2/ghc-7.0.3/XMonad.hi
        	   mismatched interface file versions (wanted "7004", got "7003")

I tried to compile the xmonad source package, but it gave a similar

    	    Bad interface file: /usr/lib/haskell-packages/ghc/lib/mtl-
        	   mismatched interface file versions (wanted "7004", got "7003")

I poked around a little:

 	$ ls /usr/lib/haskell-packages/ghc/lib/*/ 








Seems all haskel libs I have installed are hardcoded to ghc-7.0.3.
I tried dpkg --search and dpkg --listfiles on the mlt one, and it
shows that the ghc-7.0.3 directory shown above is installed by the
.deb (and not auto-generated after.)

But somehow this exact version requirement of these packages is not
understood by aptitude. libghc-mlt-dev says it requires
libghc-base-dev- which ghc-7.0.4-3 has in it's
"package names provided ghc".

I'm going to try to downgrade ghc to 7.0.3 for now. Hope that makes
things work again until this dependency stuff is worked out, or at
least new versions of the libghc-* packages are pushed to unstable.

As always, let me know if there's something I can do.

Take care,     - Jason
